Why not walk a mile in my shoes? That's the expression correct? The assumption is that a better understanding would exist, if a person knew what it was like to be the target of that old saying. A better understanding, maybe a little empathy... hell ladies and gents... most of us think it would just be really cool. That is... until it's not. This film? Think "Freaky Friday" with the twist being a couple, boyfriend and girlfriend, are the body swapping participants. What follows is some interesting, and rather funny situations regarding things that everyone knows about... yet nobody really thinks about. We all understand that woman are eternally condemned to be targets of lonely, and not so lonely men - when they go out in public. It's a given. We all know that guys get together and talk about woman, sex and cigars. Right? What guys don't know, is what it's "really" like within the walls of a female locker room. As showcased quickly by this film, it's not quite what us men may think. Did I mention I outright giggled during that short scene? As a woman, you know what a "boner" is... but to actually experience one is another story completely. These are the types of situations where "Inside You" really earns it's stars. The funny elements within common things. Common for the sex that person actually is... but once flipped around... is funny as hell. This "body swapping" is nothing new in film and literature. Something Heather Fink, who wrote this film, must have realized - because almost right off the bat, she, herself, writes in dialog that references some earlier films with a similar concept. A smart move. Aside from adding a touch of reality to her fictional world, she also instantly shuts up anyone who screams of the unoriginal movie concepts of today's film industry. Indie or studio. Fink acknowledges and nods to the conceptual similarities, yet at the same time says: This is "my" spin on an old story. My perspective and my vision. It was a smart move and even better... it completely fits into the film. Makes perfect sense. As for the movie itself? As I'm sure you've guessed, I had a good time watching. Surprisingly... a lot more fun than I anticipated. I laughed, chuckled and yes... even groaned. Heather Fink set out to write and direct an entertaining and funny feature... and succeeded. A lot of the content, I'm sure, contains thoughts and questions we have all asked ourselves at one point or another. Guys and gals alike. The only downfall is you may find yourself thinking you're not as original as you may have thought. However, that simply makes things more entertaining to watch. Technically, "Inside You" reveals another great surprise. This is a great looking, and running film. Don't be fooled by the simplistic poster art. There's a lot of technically gifted people behind the camera. The one thing I did notice? "Inside You" felt more like a television show than a film. I can't quite figure out why... it simply feels that way. That's not an insult in any way, when you consider many TV shows now-days are actually better than current film. It's simply a statement and an observation. I was also surprised with the acting from both our leading cast members, and the entire gang of supporting talent. Saying our leading man and woman were great is one thing... when you can extend that to everyone else is something completely different. From Miss Vizmelda straight through to Gunter... everyone did a splendid job. Excellent work all around. I simply love it when I can write good things about indie, lower budget film. Within the first fifteen minutes of "Inside You" I lost all doubts. Not only does it flow properly... but it's also entertaining. That's the key here. Great actors? Always a good idea. Visually competent? Always helps. In the end however, it comes down to one simple question. Was I entertained? I was. No question. A well earned four stars for an excellent production. Thanks for allowing me to escape for a little. Great film. Period.
